At the heart of the Sharpham Trust ethos is our desire to build a more mindful, compassionate and environmentally-sustainable world.

Constant caring for our environment


We try to exemplify our principles in practical ways including:

  • using biodegradable cleaning products
  • promoting wildlife and biodiversity across the Estate
  • encouraging greener transport
  • creating a green burial site at Sharpham Meadow
